3 Days!

Mom and I leave for Memphis in three days. I'm so excited, though I am still nervous about flying. Someone at the library today said usually it's the fillings in your teeth that cause the pressure - I hope not!

Tomorrow mom is calling a dinner cruise. In 2005, dad and the sheriff at the time took a business trip to Tunica, Mississippi, which is about 20 minutes from Memphis. When dad went in 2005, Tunica only had one casino and the rest were cotton fields. Mom and I want to see the cotton fields and see what we hear as a "quaint little town." Mom wants to call to make sure this dinner cruise isn't only for the casinos (more casinos have since been built). I hope it isn't and I hope we can do it. I'd like to see Mississippi!

Hmm... I found this site: Tunica Queen, but mom had something else in mind (it was more expensive). I'm not sure because we're not renting a car and what she found starts in Memphis and goes to Tunica. I really hope we can. I'm really excited!

This is what I want to see. I'd love to take a cotton pod, but I'm not sure if I'd be allowed. :(

So excited! :) I am still debating on bringing my DSLR camera or the bridge camera. The bridge camera is more light weight, but the DSLR takes wonderful pictures. Hmmm...


  1. I don't recall seeing a picture of a cotton field before.

    1. I remember in the old encyclopedias from the 1940s (nan had them), they had pictures of cotton fields. I always thought they were cool.

  2. I don't think I've ever seen cotton growing up close and personal. Northerner.

    1. That's why I'm hoping we go and that's why I hope they still have cotton fields!
